Siti Nusrinda has today filed a RM2 million suit against the police and the government for the lack of action taken by the police in her case and for the injury she sustained.
In addition, Siti Nusrinda also wants the police officers involved in the shooting - a constable and a corporal - to undergo two years' of community service.
According to her, this was to teach the duo a lesson to be more responsible in their action next time.
Her suit was filed at the Shah Alam High Court today by her lawyer M Manoharan, who is also the Kota Alam Shah assemblyperson.
In the suit, she named the Klang OCPD, Selangor police chief, inspector-general of police, the two police officers and the government as defendants.
Shot allegedly fired without warning
Besides seeking RM1 million in damages, her fiance Mohd Fauzi Mohd Daud, who is now her husband, is also seeking RM500,000 in damages. He was not injured in the incident.
A police car later arrived and flashed its headlights. Both Siti Nusrinda and Mohd Fauzi panicked and fled.
The police gave chase and allegedly started shooting without warning. A few shots were fired, with one bullet going into the passenger seat and injured Siti Nusrinda's waist.
Driver Mohd Fauzi eventually stop the car where the duo were informed by the police that they were being investigated for speeding, committing 'khalwat' (close proximity) and for obstruction of the police.
